RAIN AND WET ROCK The sandstone in Red Rocks is fragile and is very easily damaged when it is wet. MORE INFO >>>


This climb is pumpy and has small balancy holds and moves. A majority of these would not be hard but for the fact that they are 'facing the wrong way.' Careful until you get the second clip to avoid a bad fall.


This is the second route in as one descends down the Pier Gully. It is distinguished by side-pull crimpers and pinches most of the way up, lacking hte jugs of other nearby routes.


5 bolts + slings for the top. IT could be TR'd after walking down the pier and dropping a few slings and anchors onto the bolts atop it.

This route is way spooky- blowing the second or third clip could suck. The route is okay, but nowhere near as cool as the others in the area...worth a TR.

Ground fall potential if your belayer is non-attentive. Wierd moves will have you wondering why you are climbing this route.

Some tricky balance and seemingly backwards holds, but that's the charm of this route. I found it to be a good challenge and worth the effort.
